Should you consider bariatric revision surgery?
Revisional Surgery Can...
Enhance Your Results
While most patients who undergo bariatric surgery achieve dramatic weight loss, some patients only lose minor amounts of weight. At our Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, practice, we can identify the reason for this surgical failure and recommend options for revising your results.
Prevent Weight Regain
There are many different factors that can lead to weight regain after bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery revision may be able to stop further weight gain and put your weight loss back on track.
Restore Your Health
In some cases, a previous surgery performed with a now-outdated technique can cause health complications. Our team can perform revision surgery to correct these complications and improve your overall health.

A Secondary Bariatric Surgery Can Prompt Major Weight Loss
Bariatric revision surgery is the ideal treatment for patients who may or may not have experienced outstanding results following their weight loss surgery. Bariatric revision surgery refers to a weight loss treatment that follows a previous weight loss surgery that did not lead to the desired level of success. This surgery option can be performed when the patient stops losing weight or starts regaining weight, if the stomach expands, or if the prior surgery fails.
No matter what bariatric procedure you tried the first time, or what surgeon you worked with, we are happy to talk with you and help you understand your options for your bariatric surgery revision.
